There are no parts fiches available yet in the USA for the S10 so can you or anyone direct us red headed step children here in the colonies of a place to order some decals (front and back ones like you have), maybe Europe or wherever?

I posted this over in another S-10 thread, but I will post it here as well...

I already ordered the tank/fairing checkboard decals from a UK delaer and have them in my posession!
The part#'s are: 23P-28393-00 and 23P-28394-00.
They cost 14 UK Pounds each (around $24).

I bought them from Alford Bros in Folkestone, Kent, UK http://www.alfordbros.co.uk/

I emailed Nigel (from their Ebay site). His email is: nigel (at) alfordbros.co.uk

I also bought the SuperTenere tank pad from them as well:

The touring screen from calsci was put on in a blink of an eye and sorry Greg you can't have it back haha (just kidding). 300 k trip home with the screen was excellent. 10 degrees and thick fog most of the way, Such is life... With this sceen on I had very little (almost non existent) buffeting in traffic and zero vibration with the helmet. A must have item now........ Throttle lock from motorradgarage is great except it showed that i may have to reposition my bars back and maybe up a bit...... Hmmmm may have to follow Greg into motorradgarage next time hehe. Thanks mate... Just when I thought all my ducks were lined up haha
Good work posting up mate - I knew you would be impressed with the CalSci screen especially for the type and frequency of distance riding you do.
Keep that one on if you like and order one from Mark at CalSci to be sent here. Contact me when you are up to it and we can organize something.

Greg.

Greg, I had sent an email to Mark about the screens. I think you got the medium touring, and sounds like what I should get (6'1" and 33" inseam). I don't want to start any trouble, but he said the shorty was "already cut down" and no vent in it. I had asked about getting one like yours that you had cut even further down and added the vent (thinking he may have that as an option for a shorty). So yeah, that is confusing. I don't want to buy one if I've gotta cut it down or cut a vent as I don't really have the tools or know how (could figure it out I'm sure). It sounds like he disagrees with you and doesn't think the shorty needs anything different unless I'm misreading his email to me.

The shorty screen that CalSci supplied to me was originally two inch's taller.
As soon as I received the screen and went for a ride I informed Mark that they needed to be cut down to the height I have now and that is how he now manufactures that screen.
What you will receive is the same height as I have now but without the hole cut. In hindsight, and looking at before and after pics, I think I now prefer the look of this screen without the hole and will probably replace it with another one.

I appreciate the info. I apologize if my confusion about it caused any problems. I may well order a medium touring and maybe a shorty for warmer weather before the bike arrives.

Just a quick query on where you got those knobs to replace the standard screws on the windscreen?

Cheers!
I got them from RS Components in Australia (paid a premium for them as well).
I think RS are in the States but you should be able to find something similar at a computer component outlet.
They are a Knurled thumb screw with 5mm thread x 16mm to 20mm long.

Search Google images "Knurled thumb screw" and you will find something.

Lookin good Wasp. Since you are extremely familiar with the S10 any idea where to tie down the front end if one was to trailer the stock bike

PS. This only applies to me bringing the bike home from the dealer. I don't normally trailer , honest

At the front:
Choke around the L/H fork leg above the bottom triple clamp and tie down the R/H side + Choke around the R/H fork leg above the bottom triple clamp and tie down the L/H side. Tie downs cross in front of fork legs with both tie downs secured to the vehicle floor forward of the axle. Make sure the front wheel cant turn either way.

At the rear:
Simply secure from passenger hand rails down to vehicle bed on same side.

"5mm thread x 16mm to 20mm long."

Is that the same as M5? And they come 16mm and 20mm. So should I get the longer or shorter? Don't give me too many choices, it is hard on me blood pressure .
